A few weeks ago, it became known that an Israeli Guided bomb had fallen in the Syrian province of Damascus. Given the fact that the projectile did not receive any serious damage, experts say that it was not intercepted by anti-aircraft defense, but, most likely, it was “stunned” by Russian means of electronic suppression.









Analysts draw attention to the fact that it is impossible to unequivocally state that the Guided bomb was “shot down” by EW equipment, but on the basis that the projectile flew at least a hundred kilometers, and fell in an area where there are no objects having detonated at the same time, there is an assumption that the flight of the Guided bomb was suppressed by the same “Krasuha” - one of the most powerful EW facilities located in Syria.

According to official information, the detonation mechanism of a 450-pound projectile is controlled by an electronic filling of a Guided bomb, which, in fact, could be disabled by means of EW, therefore, the projectile did not detonate.

Nevertheless, experts note that obtaining an Israeli Guided bomb will allow Russian specialists to develop new means of dealing with them, thereby increasing the effectiveness of existing air and missile defense systems.

What does a "planning bomb" do? When it goes off it creates a bunch of plans?

Do you mean a drone that "plants" a bomb?

Think you have a mis translation there.

Would you mind explaining what a "planning" bomb is?

A bomb that you plan to use?

I’ve heard of these “planning bombs”. After they explode, they create CAD plans on how to rebuild the city.

Question: The circuit board shown in the picture has the CE certification mark. Why would an Israeli weapon need CE certification? Do such weapons use "off-the-shelf" components?

CE marking

Okay, I think you meant the English word "Guided".....I can see how that might be confused with "Planned".


Might want to go back in your OP while you have time and replace "Planned" with "Guided", at least that way people will know what kind of bomb you're talking about.

Thanks for the correction. This is the cost of the Google translator. My English is not very good(

You make a great point. It looks like a circuit board of a commercial CD drive. There was an "S/N" number on one of the labels. Maybe the CD was used for having map data. You would think it would be on a flash drive.

I'm not sure what to make of the story. The Iraelis are capable of anything (remember the USS Liberty) but it's not clear what the government's policy is here with this bomb.

Yes it's guided.

But if you look closely at the picture this bomb has some fairly significant wings where most guided bombs have small tail fins to guide them.

USS Liberty is a classic. In Syria, is testing new weapons of all countries. Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu said that more than 1,000 of Russia's latest weapons systems were tested in Syria. Naturally, any trial may fail. although this bomb is not new and has been in service for a long time.
I think there are chargeable tests of action-counteraction of all systems.

It doesn't look like a CD player to me. I also doubt that a CD would be effective due to the vibrations/shock. Then again, I know nothing about weapon construction.

Looks like off the shelf stuff unless they are making millions of them.

This bomb is obviously both a gliding bomb (I.e., a standoff weapon) AND a guided bomb; similar in function to the GBU-39.

Oh, yeah, I remember... that was a Clinton era partnership with the Isrealis.

They had predicted that they could decrease public outcry by 22% if every 10th bomb dropped was a "Planning Bomb". You know, to give the people a chance to rebuild afterwards. In fact yeah that was the tagline for the tv commercial they ran during the Superbowl that year: "Give the people a chance". Real heartwarming, lots of smiling young faces looking up, hoping this bomb will be the Happy Meal of all bombs... The McDonalds sponsorship actually included little toys in the bombs, they ran that promo for Mulan, when they had that szechuan sauce.

Fascinating. Tell us more about standoff weapons and what makes this a standoff weapon?

Is it because when two forces have their focus on eachother, as in a "standoff" posture, you cant always get a plane in position drop a bomb right over the target, but you can drop it like 10 miles away and glide it in on those wings?
